Miwok 100K - May 7, 2016
Registration for the 2016 Miwok 100K lottery will be open December 1 - 10, 2015, with the entrant list posted on December 12.
Look forward to seeing you on the trails, and at the 21st annual Miwok!
A big thanks to everyone who participated in the 2015 Miwok 100K. On behalf of all the volunteers, spectators and sponsors, I'd like to congratulate you on meeting the challenge, or giving a great effort in the attempt.
The weather was perfect for a long run, the wildflowers were out in abundance; I hope you all enjoyed the mysterious bagpiper at Cardiac, and our race pirate near the Pelican Inn. We had some top-notch competition and quite a few PRs this year, and will endeavor to keep exactly this course for years to come, with cutoffs adjusted to reflect this year's splits.
The Miwok 100K course is one of the most iconic in the country, with spectacular views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, Pirates' Cove, Mt. Tamalpais, Muir Beach, the Redwoods, and the Point Reyes National Seashore. The course follows fire roads and single-track trails with less than one mile of paved road. You'll get your hills in, with almost 12,000' elevation gain. Please see the website - www.miwok100k.com - for full details.
Local time: 6:39 AM
The race starts and finishes in the town of Stinson Beach and many racers are able to stroll to the start (make your reservations early) and take a dip in the ocean afterwards.
The Miwok 100K is a Western States 100 qualifier, and earns 3 points for UTMB qualification. Miwok is also a PA/USATF Ultra Grand Prix race.
